    Only thing I'm lacking now on my board is the auto swell thing as done on the DL4. However, I don't want to deal with - the big foot print, tone/vol. drop, questionable footswitches etc.

    So, what are my options really ?

    M5 / M9
    Timeline
    Other ?

    Who's moved on from DL4 with the auto swell on their board?

    The Line 6 Echo Park might get ya the SAME tone in a smaller footprint... the ToneCore line often gets overlooked here on TGP.

    Echo Park. But it converts your dry tone to digital, and the buffer is a bit bright sounding.

    But does it preserve your tone really well?

    I would say at least as well or better as any of that type device. They are well made, with quality components.

    Good question. How is the tone suck compared to a regular volume pedal?
